Red Dead Redemption 2 has a secret map – here’s how to unlock it

There's even more uncharted territory in this game

Red Dead Redemption 2 has a secret map – here’s how to unlock it
30 November 2018

Ever since Red Dead Redemption 2 was released, it became clear that this would be no ordinary game.

Beyond the super-realistic horses and tons of other wildlife, we’re learning new things about the game by the day.

And now, after we’ve already devoted hours of our life to the game, it turns out there’s an entire secret map for us to feast our eyes on.

In order to find the secret map, you’ll have to embark on a mission which involves your way to an alleyway by the Saint Denis church.

When you get there, you’ll have five clues to find in order to unlock the secret map, and the folks at GameSpot have provided a how-to guide for those of you who have tried and failed to get to the bottom of it all.

Step 1: Look for the N of ‘Denis’ on the game map, head slightly to the north and look for a red building with white doors.

Step 2: Wander over to the Saint Denis market place and make a beeline for a neat stack of barrels in an alleyway behind a gate.

Step 3: Found the Butcher and General Store yet? If you have, head back there now. If not, it’s on the southwestern side of town – head towards an overhang on the opposite side of the shops and you’ll find your third clue.

Step 4: Just north of the post office, there’s a corridor. In that corridor, there’s clue number four.

Step 5: The corridor you find yourself in is at the side of a building. Run around said building and you’ll be able to find your fifth and final clue, slightly to the north of where you’re standing. GameSpot suggests it might be a struggle at first, but you should get there eventually if you’re patient.

Once you’ve done all of that, it’s time to head to the final location, which will become clear as soon as you’ve located all five of the clues.

When you get there, there will be a special event on the cards. We’ve been promised something ‘bizarre’, but it feels like you’ll have to do the legwork to figure out exactly what’s going on.

However, be aware it doesn’t trigger during the day, so make sure to head over at night-time.
